Texas Rowing's Dave O'Neill on Coaching, Culture, and Development

Longhorns launching in San Diego

The Texas Longhorns rowing program has come a long way since longtime Cal women's head coach Dave O'Neill arrived in Austin. In 2015, not only did O'Neill lead Texas to its first-ever NCAA Championships appearance, but also the Longhorns placed seventh overall. And, most recently, the Longhorns came within roughly one second of sweeping San Diego Crew Classic, winning the novice eight, second varsity eight, and varsity eight events, only to fall just short in the varsity four.

Here, we catch up with Dave on his approach to coaching, changing team culture, and program development.
